We worked with Paracarnival to host four afternoon Carnival Arts workshops in August, incorporating costume-making, signed song and traditional dance. We then participated in Hackney Carnival on Sunday 9 September alongside Newham organisations Act Up! Newham, Powerhouse, Starpad DJs and the Huddlestone Centre. Our theme was Kings and Queens. Watch out for Paracarnival in Newham in November as part of the Together! 2018 Disability History Month Festival. Photos by Saffron Saidi.
